Hollywood scandal plays real ugly see.
29 June 2019 | by cerealmonSee all my reviews

Got this movie in the Mill Creek 200 cult cinema box set. Wasn't expecting much and didn't get it either.

A tale of scandal, blackmail and murder. Down on his luck PI get involved in the scummy underworld of Hollywood dirt rags. But did he get in over his head?

Alright movie not great not horrible. I wouldn't run out to see it but kept my interest. If you have it might as well give it a look. There is a lot worse out there.
